Many to thanks to Squacks for being kind enough to allow me to send some of his stories to our troops serving in Afganistan! With his permission, I began sending them as a sort of a series to a couple of friends who are avid hunters but were called-up to active duty and are stuck for the next 18-24 months in what they call "a Martian landscape" and "the wild west, except with camels". These teriffic short stories have really helped to improve their spirits and are being enjoyed by people who wouldn't normally have the chance to read them in this forum. Squacks, if you read this, THANK YOU! You're a fine gentleman. You really should consider putting these together as a series of short stories and have them published. I'd buy a copy.
